The groundbreaking mission to make a 10-year, time-lapse movie of the universe

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Astronomers are about to begin making a time lapse of the night sky using the largest digital camera ever constructed. Designed to reveal any new or moving point of light as well as the structure of the universe, the new $473 million Vera C. Rubin Observatory in Chile will take so many images, so fast, that it will effectively produce an astronomical movie that allows scientists to see the universe in real time.

When will the Rubin Observatory start operations?

LSSTCam arrived at Cerro Pachón in May 2024, but science operations are still far off. They're expected to start late in 2025 or early 2026, although alignment and testing images will likely be released in spring 2025, according to the observatory website.
